Radiating Elegance and Sportiness: Riva 76’ Perseo

Heir to and evolution of the multiple award-winning 76’ Perseo,  the best-loved Riva sport-fly  of recent  years proposes  new aesthetic solutions combined with unprecedented functional design features, achieving excellence in terms of onboard  liveability and performance.

With  an overall  length  of 23.25 metres  (73  ft 3 in) and a maximum beam of 5.75 metres  (18 ft10 in), Riva 76’ Perseo Super  is the result  of an aesthetic and technological development effort that  achieves a  perfect balance   of  past,  present and  future,   the  product of  collaboration between the Product  Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, designer Mauro Micheli, the founder of Officina Italiana Design with Sergio Beretta,  and the  Ferretti Group  Engineering Department.

Exterior styling featuring over 40  square  metres  of glazed  surfaces  on the  hull  and  in the superstructure is enhanced by new  stylistic features.  In the streamlined profile, glossy  black details intersect the ice white  dominating the hull and main deck, in a contrast that accents  both the sporty  verve  and classical  elegance  of this extraordinary sport-fly.

One of the stand-out functional design elements in the evolution of the 76’  Perseo  is the roof with  an  opening  forward   section  positioned  over  the  lounge,   with the  dual  function  of illuminating the space below  and allowing fresh air to enter.

The authentic Riva tradition echoes throughout the yacht in the form of mahogany and polished stainless steel detailing, a technical and design feature that forms part of the Sarnico-based shipyard’s legacy.

The entire stern area is designed to offer maximum comfort  for guests and be practical for the crew. Almost  the  entire swim  platform  can  be  lowered into the  water,  where  it acts  as an underwater surface  to relax on and an aid to leaving the water  safely.

The cockpit offers an area for socialising, with a sofa in the aft section and a teak dining  table seating  eight  featuring the Riva logo and a stainless steel base. On request, the entire area can be  converted into a big  sun  pad  with  a mechanism that  lowers  the  table  so that  it  can be covered with cushions.  The area is enhanced with solutions that increase the level of comfort, like the option of a drawer refrigerator under the sofa or a pouffe with a low table.

On the left, under  the stairs leading to the sun deck,  is the entrance to the crew  cabin on the lower  deck. The spacious sun deck is integrated into the yacht’s  aerodynamic lines, offering  somewhere to relax  in total privacy, plus a helm station  to pilot the yacht  from a privileged vantage  point.  

The bow area, on the other  hand, is fitted  out as a big lounge  with a front-facing sofa that can be sheltered by a hood. A big sun pad at the tip of the bow rounds out the fittings in this private relaxation area.

The  dominant  wood   in the  main  lounge   for  the  standard   version  is  sand-coloured oak, juxtaposed in classic Riva style against mirror surfaces  or light and dark lacquer, with polished stainless steel  detailing.  The lounge is a large and inviting open space.  Past the glass entry door, the living area on the starboard side is furnished with a sofa, an armchair and a pouffe and a leather-topped coffee  table.  

Further forward   is the   dining  area   seating  eight,  featuring  an  L-shaped   sofa  elegantly coordinated with the oak table and black leather  chairs by Arper. Forward on the starboard side and furnished with two Riva pilot seats is the helm station. The layout has three  cabins for six guests,  all with en-suite bathrooms, but the owner  can also request a fourth  cabin, configured as always to ensure  optimum comfort  and liveability.

The master  stateroom dominates the midship section of the yacht. Here the stand-out features for their refinement and minimalist design are the bed with leather  headboard and sides, and the  ergonomic and  functional furnishings. The  en-suite bathroom is behind  a smoked  glass mirror door.  

On the starboard side is a guest  cabin furnished with single beds  and a separate bathroom, while  the VIP cabin is in the bow, with a twin wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower.

The new Riva 76’ Perseo Super  excites owners  with excellent performance in line with the other great  success  stories  in the sport  range  and is fitted  with  a pair  of MAN V12 V-drive engines rated  1,550  mhp  each.  With  this  configuration, the  yacht  has a top  speed  of 32 knots  and a cruising speed  of 28  knots. The  owner  can also opt  for a more  powerful propulsion system featuring two MAN V12 engines rated  1,800  MHP each, in which  case the top speed  rises to 37 knots and the cruising speed  to 32 knots.
